Can you help  interpret what this interval tells us and how  I can understand it?

The 95% confidence interval for the population mean IQ is, (107.77, 116.23).

Interpretation:

We are 95% confident that the population mean IQ will be in between (107.77, 116.23).

Explanation:

The size of the sample, n = 33

The sample mean, ﻿﻿ = 112

The population standard deviation, ﻿﻿ = 12.4

Since the population standard deviation is known, use of z confidence interval

is appropriate in this scenario.

The z-critical value at 95% confidence level, ﻿﻿ = 1.96

The margin of error is, ﻿﻿

The 95% confidence interval for the population mean IQ is,

﻿﻿
